Vista and CD/DVD burning

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Hardware' started by Phillip Schlueter, Jul 25, 2006.

  1. Since installing Vista many weeks ago, I have not be able to Burn to CD or
    DVD. The devices work for playing music and movies and read data just fine,
    but do not Burn--not from Nero or anything in Vista. Is there a setting
    that I must tweak? Am I missing something in a setup somewhere?
    Both devices are Sony, one a CD/RW, DVD Rom and the other is a CD/DVD RW.
    Neither will Burn a thing. Sometimes I feel like setting the whole box on
    fire--that will certainly make a nice Burn!

    It won't help you to know that I'm using the Vista burning tool to burn CDs
    and DVDs via right-click 'Send To' and selecting the DVD-RW drive. It then
    formats the disk and copies the data.

    I didn't bother to install Nero and would suggest you uninstall it then
    delete 2 registry keys :-

    Start, Run, type regedit and navigate to registry key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
    Highlight it and in the right pane, find the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters
    values. Highlight each one in turn, right click and delete them. Close
    regedit and restart the computer. If in doubt make a restore point before
    making the deletions.

  3. BW, I tried every-which-a-way to get the job done, including as you
    describe. I tried to format thinking that that was the problem to no avail.
    I will delete Nero as I have seen it's not comp. w/Vista. The strange thing
    is that some of the commands do work, specifically "Eject" and the correct
    drive with letter D or E work, so I think windows is aware of the drives
    properly so I'm just confused.

    My Vista installation has become even more stable over the last few weeks
    and I've not had the BSOD ever. A few reboots, but really not the kinds of
    problems others have reported--except for much of the software I own does
    not work with Vista in 'ANY compatibility mode'.

    Thanks for the regedit suggestion. I do know how to do that! I had one
    HELL of a time getting rid of AOL!! If only Vista would have suggested I
    get rid of it before installation like it does for other programs. I'm left
    tho with either "uninst_us.exe or uninstal.exe which I can't even find
    anywhere on my puter.
